- Will We Be Saying Good-bye To Traditional CCD and CMOS Sensors Anytime Soon?18 June 2013, 10:27 am
So, you probably read the news, two new sensor technologies were revealed this month, promising everything from flashless cameras (flash as in light popping device, not as in memory banks) to organic sensors that can one day overcome mankind.
While these are both revolutionary, I doubt we'll be seeing one of these in our cameras soon, the other one? not sure, may be a tad quicker.

- How Long Can You Expose A Night Sky Before Getting Star Trails?18 June 2013, 9:47 am
When taking photographs of the night skies there is a simple way to avoid smearing the stars and getting them sharp. (As opposed to star trails which are awesome, but different).
It's called the rule of 600, which is astrophotography's equivalent to the 1/focal length of shooting hand held. Basically the rule says that you cannot shoot with a shutter speed of over 600/<focal length> in seconds. So when using a 600mm lens for example, you can only keep the shutter for 1 second before star t...

- Quick Hands-On: $100 "Polaroid" PL135 Bare-Bulb Flash10 June 2013, 1:17 pm
UPDATE: The Polaroid PL-135 (AKA the rebranded "Triopo TR120") has been unceremoniously pulled from the market just a week or so after it launched.
Has the venerable Sunpak 120J bare bulb flash been reincarnated? By a world-famous company, no less?
Well, no. Not exactly. It's no Sunpak 120J (doesn't have the extra stop of power) and, strictly speaking, it's not really a Polaroid flash per se. Keep reading for the bare facts (rimshot!) on the Polaroid PL-135.
